My Movies

Here is a new movie I've been working on for a while, trying to decide if it needed a soundtrack. After thinking about this issue, it's clear that the movie is much stronger if left entirely silent. The implicit noises of the images are more than enough...

Implosion-explosion: dual movements condition this movies development, resulting in a compression-expansion of our time sense via momentum. Even the title, taken from the low Earth orbit nuclear test that introduced the Electro-Magnetic Pulse that wipes away technological sophistication to the world, reflects this destructive alchemythe progression of a rising black sun that consumes (glitches) everything.
